    5 inches and counting!

    Of SNOW that is! And I'm talking about Southwest Missouri! The snow is falling at my house at the rate of about 1 inch per hour. On May 3rd? Global warming??

    I don't see you but I'm here.
    How can you be here?
    I think you're there and confused.

    And what do you use to measure (5 inches?) and who is doing it?

    And btw: "Global warming or not" indicators aren't cold temperatures in normally warm latitudes but high temperatures in normally cold latitudes.
    I am pretty sure the Polar bears have nothing to fear anymore, because it is snowing in Missouri early May.

    "Global Warming" is just a pop culture catch phrase. The scientific term is "climate change" and the indicators are everywhere.... even "here".

    Well then, you better get in touch with Mr. Gore & purchase some of his "carbon-credits".

    ahh.... sunshine and a bit of a cool east wind here in beautiful Larry's River, Nova Scotia. Grass is getting greener by the day. Just came in from enjoying a fine cigar and an adult beverage. Climate change for good and bad I suppose. - Bob

    Only about 4" here but around 12" snowfall fell about 50mi south of here. Still hoping for decent weather Sunday for BMW Vintage Days in Polk City, IA. Definitely a strange spring this year!

    Ah, if it were only that easy. You and I will be able to continue enjoying our motorcycles. It's our kids and grandkids who will pay a heavy price. But...we are far afield from [5" of snow in Ash Grove, MO]. My apologies to the original poster.
